Citing a need to treat all dogs of any breed equally, Welsh, Louisiana has repealed their 11-year-old “pit bull” ban.  Perhaps readers will remember that in 2008, Welsh sought to add additional so-called “vicious” breeds to their 2002 “pit bull” ban.  Welsh has now opted instead to replace the “pit bull” ban with a revision to the ordinance that focuses on a dog’s actions, not its breed.  Going forward,owning a dog deemed dangerous or vicious will be prohibited in Welsh.
